Simply Powerful

When payroll gets complicated, BrightPay makes it simple. It has been built from scratch with a continual awareness of elegant, clutter-free user interface design. You'll feel right at home.

Feature Packed Software

If we were to list all of the payroll software features offered by BrightPay here, you'd have a lot of scrolling to do. Rest assured that it delivers it all, and delivers it well.

Unlimited Employees

Our payroll software does not set a limit on the number of employees you can add to your payroll. And there are no confusing price brackets that depend on the number of employees you have.

Payroll Bureau

The Bureau version of BrightPay is the perfect way to manage payroll for several employers. There is no limit on the number that can be set up and no confusing pricing structures.

Full ROS Compatibility

Starters, leaves, year end, and Revenue payments. BrightPay will guide you through the process of creating ROS compatible P45, P46, P45 Part 3, P35 and P30 files.

Back to the Future

In BrightPay, any employee (or group of employees) can be individually reverted back or progressed forward in the payroll year at any time. It's super flexible yet safe and simple.

Easy Payslips

Payslips can be emailed or exported to PDF at the click of a button. They can also be printed on A4 or A5 paper (blank or Thesaurus stationery). Handy customisation options let you do what you need.

Live pay calculation

As you enter payments, additions and deductions for your employees, a live payslip preview will automatically update to show you the calculated payslip values quickly and clearly.

Simple Period Navigation

BrightPay supports weekly, fortnightly, 4-weekly and monthly payroll. The payroll screen gives a clear overview of all periods together and any period can be quickly accessed with one click.

Let BrightPay Remind You

Is an employee starting or leaving? Has an employee recently turned 66? BrightPay will let you know what is happening when and remind you what to do.

Your Data is Secure

Each employer set up in BrightPay requires a password to save and open. The payroll software stops you from performing actions which would invalidate or corrupt your payroll data.

Powerful Reporting

Our payroll software allows you to recall, view and analyse all your payroll data. Multiple reports can be opened together, saved or favourited, exported in popular formats, and printed.

Jobs & Pensions Service – New Online Service for Employees

The Jobs & Pensions Service available from Monday 12th of September 2016 is a new online service for employees. Irish employees can register their new job (or private pension) with Revenue using the service.

The Jobs and Pensions service replaces the Form 12A, meaning employees must register their first job in Ireland using the service. After registering employment using the service a tax credit certificate will issue to both the employer (P2C) and employee.

The service can also be used by employees who are:

• changing jobs provided the previous job has been ceased on Revenue records, employees will be able to see when they log in if the previous job has been ceased

• starting a second job in addition to their main job

• starting to receive payments from a private pension

Access to the service is available in myAccount, employees must register to use the service.

Employers should:

• encourage new employees to register for myAccount

• provide new employees with the information required to register their new job (registration can be done in advance of the start date):

- tax registration number
- start date of the new job
- pay frequency
- staff number is one has been allocated

• no longer submit a P46 form where employees register their own job using the service

• continue to upload P45(3) as normal

• continue to issue P45s immediately on cessation of employment

• operate the emergency basis for PAYE & USC if a pay day occurs before receipt of either P45 or P2C

Further information on the service can be found in Revenue’s Employer Notice September 2016, which can be found here.
